  • United Airlines Now Reportedly Operating Charter Flights to Pre-Position Doses of Pfizer’s Covid Vaccine

The first doses of Pfizer's coronavirus vaccine candidate have been flown over to the US from Belgium, a source familiar with United Airlines' COVID Vaccine Readiness Task Team planning confirmed to NBC on Saturday.

United Airlines is beginning to fly the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccination around the country ahead of a mass inoculation program expected to begin in late December, according to a report.

The prime minister was responding to claims that the first group in the country to receive the Covid-19 vaccine such as frontliners would be regarded as experiment subjects in the process to evaluate the effectiveness of the vaccine.

Pfizer was the first of three - so far - pharmaceutical companies to publicize the results of its vaccine's phase 3 trial efficacy.

In addition, the Journal reports that the drugmaker has stood up refrigerated storage units at its two vaccine production sites in MI and Belgium as well as its main distribution hubs in Wisconsin and Germany. The company has already been producing doses for immediate use and expects to produce as many as 50 million doses of its vaccine by the end of the year, although a share of those doses are designated for distribution in the European Union.

The British newspaper "Daily Mail" said that the flights are the first step in the global supply and distribution stages, which will start operating when the vaccine is approved by regulators.

The Journal said United Airlines charters were transporting the vaccine in dry ice and that the air carrier had been granted permission to carry 15,000 pounds of the solid form of carbon dioxide, five times the normal amount allowed, to keep the drug at or below the temperature to prevent spoiling.
